Laser / IPL Skin Treatments

Thread Vein and Leg Vein Removal Treatment

Lasers and IPL is a non-invasive treatment that can be used to remove thread veins on the face, body and legs quickly and effectively. Thread vein removal treatment will remove fine and large thread veins approximately 1-3mm in size.

The light passes safely through the skin which is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to point where the blood in the targeted blood vessel coagulates, causing the vein to break down.

The damaged veins will gradually dissolve and be removed by the body naturally, fading over several weeks after treatment leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.

Two or three sessions is usually all that is needed to leave your skin feeling smooth and blemish-free, however on average 5 treatments are recommended for best results.

Pigmentation / Sun Damage

Constant exposure to the sun can damage the skin and cause common skin imperfections such as redness, freckles, age spots and uneven skin texture.

Sandalwoods Skin Clinic offers simple and affordable IPL Rejuvenation Treatments to rejuvenate your skin and visibly reduce skin imperfections. Intense pulsed light is absorbed by unwanted skin pigmentations, causing the pigment to shatter and seals the surrounding small blood vessels.

The heat energy of IPL also stimulates new collagen production, firms the skin and reduces skin pore size, resulting in more perfect looking skin.

Who is this treatment suitable for?

IPL Rejuvenation is only suitable for clients with fair skin types.

What should I expect after my IPL rejuvenation treatment?

There is redness and heat in the treated skin for about half an hour.

What does IPL rejuvenation feel like?

During IPL Rejuvenation, you will experience a quick sensation like the snapping of a small rubber band on the skin, with some warmth.

What can I expect after my treatment?

You may feel “sunburnt” initially after treatment and the treated area may be red for a few hours. If you have pigmentation you will notice the pigment darkens after treatment. The pigmentation flakes off gradually over the next 2 weeks.

How long until I see results?

In the weeks after the treatment, the fragmented pigment is absorbed by the body leaving little trace of the pigment or freckle.

What areas can I have treated?

IPL Rejuvenation can treat anywhere where the sun has caused damage and abnormal pigmentation e.g. the face, chest, neck, arms and hands.

How many treatments are recommended?

Improvements can be seen with every treatment, but a course of 3-6 treatments is recommended every 4 weeks for maximum results.

IPL Rosacea / Redness Treatment

Are you suffering from Rosacea?

Do you avoid certain triggers that make your rosacea worse?

Do you avoid social situations because your rosacea makes you feel self-conscious?

IPL treatments can improve the appearance of redness and thread veins caused by Rosacea.

The thread veins absorb the light energy, which makes them hot, the body reabsorbs the veins, improving and fading their appearance.

Secondly, the light energy warms the collagen fibres in the skin.

This stimulates new collagen, which improves the support of the small blood vessels helping to delay the development of more thread veins.

Can laser treatment help my rosacea?

If you have rosacea, then laser or IPL treatment could make a significant difference to the redness of your skin.
